FAQ: Formal Hairstyles

How should I do my hair for formal?

Pull your hair into a ponytail that hangs down your back or to the side, or just wear it smooth and straight. Make a low or high bun with your prom hair. Curling irons, foam rollers or flat irons can all be used to curl or wave your straight hair.

How do you curl your hair for a formal event?

Try to curl your hair in portions towards your face with a one-inch barrel iron. Once each piece is curled, use a duckbill hair clip to fix the curl to your head. Let your curls cool before repeating the procedure with the rest of your hair. Take away the hair clips once the curls have cooled and brush them out to get smooth, elegant waves.
